    To all the members of the Gaus family,

    Please accept the condolences of the the whole Byrne family. We remember Mrs. Gaus from various family parties and of course from Wes and Ann’s fantastic wedding in Jamaica.

    I personally have gained from her gift of raising Wes to be the fine person, loving father and uncle, and fun brother-in-law that he is.

    We pray that she receives peace in God’s hands and that the Gaus family finds comfort.

    Love, David (Ann’s Brother), Darrah, and Cavan Byrne
